Falcoholic Podcast: Atlanta’s faint playoff hopes may finally be dead

We recap what is likely the last meaningful game for the Falcons 2021 season.

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at San Francisco 49ers Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

For those who complained that we spoke about the playoffs too much, that’s probably going to change now. After getting beat 31-13 in San Francisco, the Falcons official playoff chances dropped to 2%. So, while they’re not mathematically out of it, they are out of it for all intents and purposes.

We talk about the game and the dashed playoff hopes on the latest postgame podcast with Evan and me. Topics discussed:

  • The Falcons offensive offense and how the poor play of Jaylen Mayfield in particular stood out
  • Matt Ryan’s relatively good game considering how often he was pressured
  • Kyle Pitts potential and why he could be in for a massive breakout in 2022
  • The frustrating day for Cordarelle Patterson, who had his worst game of the year
  • The defense is bad
  • Appreciating the value of our special teams
  • So much more
